“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I love this hotel and I stay here each time I'm in Sydney. I was given a Bridge View room which had a lovely view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The room itself had a king size bed and was very spacious with a comfy armchair, desk and all e mini bar amenities you could want.
The location of the hotel is great within The Rocks area. On Sundays they have the markets which are great to walk through and pick up fantastic bargains. There are also many food stalls to choose from.

The only downside to my trip this time was that the room service meal wasn't very good. I had ordered the soup of the day (which was mushroom) and it was so bad I couldn't eat it. The rest of my meal was okay but certainly not the standard I've had in the past.
The breakfast the next day made up for the room service meal. The selections were very good and everything was well presented.

Room Tip: If you have a room located on the Pier you have your own outdoor table and chairs

This was a birthday present for my 60th birthday. What a gift. The staff from the reception to the waiting staff were wonderfully helpful and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble for them. Especially Justine who I drove crazy getting things out of my car. The breakfast was amazing and the location was so peaceful. Best place I have stayed at in Sydney.
Would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view. It is of the wharf but you get to see the passing ferries etc and watch the...

We recently stayed in Sebel Pier One for two nights. Here are our comments.

Pros:
1. Location. It's right next to Habor bridge, it's in the heart of Rocks area but in a quiet corner. There are many interesting places within walking distance. It's close to Circular Quay where there is a train station and ferry station for sightseeing.

2. Service. We really like their friendly staff and their service.

3. Breakfast. We like they have so many choices of fresh fruit in breakfast, very good!

Cons:
1. It's a small hotel and they only have one restaurant. But since there are many choices outside, it does not really bother us. But we think if they can open a restaurant or bar on their roof, it will be fantastic.

2. Bed. The bed in twin-bed room is really small. It's a single bed size, not queen size. We are from Asia and we are not big, still we feel the bed size is a bit too small. Because the room size is not big either, I guess they do not have much choices.

Our family had never stayed at Pier One before but we will definitely be back. The staff were pleasant and polite, the service and food were great and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. It's so close to everything. We enjoyed a lovely Xmas stay - Fireworks at Darling Harbour Xmas Eve and caught the ferry over to Manly for Xmas lunch. All so easy.

The Sebel, Pier One is ideally placed, almost under the Harbour bridge, with spectacular views of Sydney harbour and just a short stroll to The Rocks, the passenger terminal and Circular Quay. Some rooms would have great views of the bridge and the Opera House as well.
We managed to get a good rate for a Saturday night in December, from a Sydney Weekender deal, which included a delicious buffet breakfast and reasonable valet parking.
The rooms are spacious enough, with very comfortable beds and a good bathroom with all amenities. We had good views of the bridge from our room.
I would certainly consider staying there again if spending a night or two in the city.

Room Tip: Request a room on the upper floor with views of the bridge and/or Opera House.

We booked Xmas lunch (seafood buffet) for two and stayed Christmas night. Our booking was confirmed, valet parking was smoothly handled and efficient! Our request for table near the window (and not beside children) was provided!

The buffet was WELL worth the price and right up to te end was plentiful, drinks sensibly served but attentive, and our room looking down the harbour was lovely.

Full buffet breakfast the next day with checkout as te as 11.00am made for a relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: The rooms over the pier at the harbour end have been renovated, are heritage listed, but are quirky...

I stayed here for a night away with my husband. They upgraded out room but after seeing the room I asked for a downgrade as you couldn't see the water from the bigger room as the windows are high up and small. One downgraded we were happy, smaller room but a full length window that looks over the water- I felt like were were on a cruise which was fun. Service was great, location great, view great. the decor was all white ok but maybe a bit clinical and sterile. the breakfast was the usual hotel buffet and enjoyable.

Room Tip: ale sure you have one with a sliding door to let the sea air in.
